It's the same with any class. Bad spell selection is more accurately described as 'desperate' spell selection; they're meant to be used when things get messy. Mistweavers are actually do pretty well in pve healing.
to the OP: WoTLK was arguably the simplest expansion to heal in. I've been healing as a shaman since before BWL came out, and what it comes down to, is timing your cooldowns when massive damage goes out, and using low cost spells to keep people topped off until that happens.
Realize that there is damage you cannot outheal. If your group isn't doing an encounter properly, it will make healing much more difficult.
It all comes down to just continuing to heal, and figuring out which heals to use when. Don't waste your mana when people are at a safe amount of health. Most new healers feel an urge to use aoe heals whenever more than 2 people are hurt. Thing is, small heals work just as well, unless there's massive damage going out. Save those big heals and your mana for when you need them.
Just do your best. no one can outheal an instant death, or multiple dps standing in fire. Well, at least with a lot of mana to spare.
